first day of 6th grade!

A month ago the kids started school. Thought it was probably time for me to blog about their first day.

Brooke is now in the 6th grade. She now attends the intermediate school. (here we have 4 grade levels...k-5(elem)6-7(intermediate), 8-9 (middle), 10-12 (high). She has to be out the door at 7:20. This has been our biggest challenge...we are night owls at our house.

We have set up a car pool with a few friends. Here are Brooke and Bri ready for the first day!

(You would think after all this time I would know how to flip my pictures...I just can't get it done!)
Addie was sad to see Brooke go....she loves having Brooke around. Brooke does a great job entertaining her. When I picked up Brooke from school I asked about her day. That one question lead to her chatting about school the entire way home. She loved it. She was a little nervous to change classrooms, but found it to be very easy. She loves most of her teachers (yuck for p.e., yeah for math, science and language arts). I am still in shock that I am only 22 years old and have a kid in 6th grade... how did that happen:)

Brooke is so dang cute and I just love her, as do my boys when she baby sits. Also the post about Neils finger made my tummy churn, ouch, it looked way painful!
